Hi, I’m Lydia,

and I’m a fantasy author. I’m currently working on a series of novels about a disgraced war-hero obsessed with finishing his ancient quest.

I’m contemplating the self-publishing route while researching various publishers.

I have two short stories, “Infinite” and “Shadows of Ruin” published on Short Fiction Break. I share a new short story for free on my website every month, and am working on a novella for my email subscribers. 

I’ll be hosting readalongs in our bookclub section where you can read reviews of what I’m reading and share your thoughts. 

You’ll be the first to receive a copy of my novella once it’s finished (for FREE!), and you’ll always be in-the-know on important updates and upcoming book releases. 

If that sounds like your cup of joe (extra creamer, please!), I’d love to have you join me by signing up below. 🙂

Happy Reading, and Welcome!
